In Ubisoft’s much-hyped third-person online shooter Tom Clancy’s The Division players find themselves in a New York City destroyed by a virus that has caused society as we know it to collapse, taking on the role of an agent in the Strategic Homeland Division—a group of people specially trained for an emergency situation such as this tasked with doing whatever it takes to save the city before it’s too late.
A series of new live action shorts have been released looking at the stories of four of these agents. The series is titled “Agent Origins,” and you can read more and check out all of the videos below.
